Fonnesbech

Ethical + Fair | Sustainable Materials | Eco-friendly Production

Danish fashion brand Fonnesbech is built upon a century-long heritage that started in 1847 when Anders Fonnesbech opened his eponymous shop in Copenhagen. What initially began as a store for high-quality fabrics, textiles and garters, evolved into a high-end fashion house that produced its own collections of garments and accessories up until the 1970’s. The re-launch of Fonnesbech in 2015 follows this legacy. Fonnesbech offers sophisticated clothing for professional women. The brand’s timeless garments are designed for a well-curated wardrobe that focuses on fewer items of high-quality and versatility. Fonnesbech uses GOTS and Oeko-tex certified organic textiles, and certified recycled polyester fabrics by Newlifemade from post-consumer plastic bottles. All manufacturing is conducted in the European Union, following EU legislation regarding minimum wage, working conditions, and environmental standards.
